In My Mailbox explores the contents of my “mailbox” on a weekly basis. I’ll be using this as a book and contest round-up tool to show what I’m getting ready to review. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here at The Story Siren.
“The Forest of Hands and Teeth” by Carrie Ryan, and “Sea Change” by Aimee Friedman. I haven’t heard anything bad about “The Forest of Hands and Teeth,” and I know I need to read it before book-talking it (the cover will not sell itself in my library), and I’m trying to decide if I should order “Sea Change” for my YA section.
“Immortal” by Gillian Shields. Mixed reviews on this book; I’ll have to read it to make my own decision!
All in all, a very fantasy/supernatural heavy week. We’ll have to balance it out with another ALA ARC highlight, “Liar” by Justine Larbalestier.
(I have the original cover, but will be buying the book once it comes out in hardcover.)
Lastly, I just found out that Lifetime Movie Network is premiering an adaptation of Lois Duncan’s “Stranger With My Face” this next weekend coming up! I am so excited — Lois Duncan books were some of my favorite YA books as an actual YA. I’m so planning on re-reading this one sometime before I watch the movie. The blue cover is the one that my library had as a teen. I am so glad that YA covers are so much smarter now. The second cover is the reprint one that I own.
Congrats to all BBAW nominees! Hope everyone’s week was awesome!
